IMAGE1 S™ 4U Rubina – The new 4K-NIR/ICG platform
IMAGE1 S™ 4U RUBINA combines 4K imaging technology with fluorescence imaging for displaying indocyanine green (ICG) or autofluorescence in the near infra red range. The technology features very good image quality as well as new NIR/ICG fluorescence modes. The new modes, e.g., the superimposed NIR/ICG signal in the white light image, provide the user with valuable information. In addition, IMAGE1 S™ RUBINA offers the display intensity of a NIR/ICG signal and a pure near infrared mode in monochromatic color display for a clear delination of structures.
- Native 4K image resolution with very good image brightness and richness of color and detail
- OPAL1® NIR/ICG technology with new functionalities
- S-Technologies in white light and the overlay modes Overlay and Intensity Map
- Enhanced* NIR/ICG telescopes and new 45° models with diameters of 5 m and 10 mm
- Laser-free LED light source for white light and NIR/ICG excitation
*in comparison to previous models

Instrument Set for Pyloromyotomy
KARL STORZ offers a complete instrument set for pyloromyotomy featuring instruments that are specifically designed for this indication.
Percutaneous pyloric knife with knife insert for single use:
- Optimal cutting every time
- Integrated ratchet mechanism allows the knife insert to be locked in 8 positions (1.5 mm steps) and extended to the desired length in a controlled manner in order to achieve the required cutting depth.
GEIGER Percutaneous Pyloric Grasper
- Grasping forceps for stabilizing the pylorus during pyloromyotomy
- The instrument set for pyloromyotomy also includes various pyloric spreaders and graspers that are suitable for both percutaneous applications and use with a trocar.
E.P.Si.T. – Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment
The pilonidal sinus is an acute or chronic inflammatory process in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, often occurring in the sacrococcygeal region1. E.P.Si.T. – Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment – proceeds in two phases. In the first – diagnostic – phase, the sinus cavity and the sinus tracts are examined. The aim of the second – therapeutic – phase is to ablate the abscess cavity and to eliminate the fistula2. Both phases are performed under direct endoscopic control.
- E.P.Si.T. can be performed in an outpatient setting
- Ablation of the abscess cavity and elimination of the fistula under direct vision
- High patient satisfaction3
- Straightforward, safe, effective and reproducible method of treatment3
- Instruments can also be used to treat anal fistulas (VAAFT technique)

The RoTaLock® Trocar
The TAN ROTALOCK® trocar is a self-retaining trocar that was specially developed for neonatal surgery / pediatric laparoscopic surgery.
- The distal shape of the cannula enables fixation directly under the abdominal wall
- Due to the short length of the sheath, the distal tip of the cannula does not hinder opening of the jaws
- One-piece sealing system for single use, now available as a sterile version
- Available in sizes 3.5 mm and 6 mm
- Color coding of housing indicates size (3.5 mm green / 6 mm black)
Three-part Dismantling CLICKline Series for Pediatric Laparoscopic Surgery
The CLICKLINE instrument line (diameter 3.5 mm, length 20 cm) for pediatric laparoscopic surgery features great stability while its efficient, modular construction offers a high level of flexibility.
- Working length (20 cm) adapted to the special requirements of pediatric laparoscopy
- Modular concept: Instruments can be disassembled into three parts for maximum hygiene and variability
- Diverse combination possibilities thanks to a wide range of jaws with various outer sheaths and CLICKLINE handles
Rotating Bipolar Grasping Forceps and Scissors for Pediatric Laparoscopic Surgery
The Rotating Bipolar Instruments are available in 3.5 mm diameter and 20 cm working length and facilitate precise work on tissue. The instrument design and the materials used ensure high mechanical stability. The force limiter integrated into the handle prevents any potential overloading of the jaws. Color coding on the forceps insert and the handle allows clear identification of the new, modular ROBI® components.
- Rotating bipolar instruments with 3.5 mm diameter and 20 cm working length
- Insulated outer sheath, 360° rotating
- Modular design
The Trocar Generation for Laparoscopic Pediatric Surgery
The trocar generation combines single-use with reusable components. Whereas cannulas and trocars feature a design with reusable components, the new valve seal is intended for single use.
- Reduced overall weight thanks to the newly designed plastic trocar housing
- One-piece sealing system for single use (package of 10), now available as a sterile version
- Minimal friction between the valve seal and the instrument
- Available in diameters 2.5 mm, 3.5 mm and 6 mm with a working length of 5 cm
